It’s rare that two teams within a Division will make a trade. On Sunday, the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays did exact that.

The Yankees trade their former utility guy Rob Refsnyder to the Blue Jays. In exchange, minor-league first baseman Ryan McBroom is heading to the pinstripes affiliate.

Refsnyder was recently designated for assignment for the Yankees on Wednesday. He was struggling when he played for the Big Apple’s most-popular team with a .135 batting average with a double and eight strikeouts in 20 games.

When he played for the Yankees, he played first and second base in the infield. He also played left and right field in the outfield.

McBroom has primarily played in Double-A this season. He could be headed for the Trenton Thunder, the Yankees Double-A affiliate. He had a .243 batting average with 12 home runs and 19 doubles in 96 games.
